Subject: Typical of the day.
I grew up during WWII, with the movie stars selling war bonds from city to city. The propaganda films spilled over into the movies, such as this one, although not necessarily believable. I was a Cagney fan, and I enjoyed this one. I love old b&w films, from news-reel to the travelogues. This was a little sappy, especially the ending. How many stupid chances did Cagney take and still survive. I'll watch these kind of films every time, it's in the blood.
